    hi im new here (sort of, never posted) anyways my question is that why is there no S2000 type-r? there's the integra R, civic R, and even the euro accord R, so why no S2000 R? Its been itching at my head for quite a long time now, so if anyone has an idea why it would greatly keep me from scratching my head all day.

    thanks...

    Because you can't really improve on perfection.

    <_< har har....yea pick on the little guy. I was not talking about a riced out s2k with a ferrari badge but rather a track tuned(as in circuit racing) s2k. i was reading up on an article on how the honda's "poor-man's supercar" the nsx, has its own "type-arrr." so it got me wondering. well i guess you can't make a car that does "pin you to your seat action" any better...

    right time for me to grow up and shut up...

    well if you think about it- if they made an s2000 type r, they would then be into the same HP range as the NSX and could therefore be fighting with one of their own models for sales- Which i suppose could be benficial....but could also deter potential customers......or i'm way off base here and i could be completely wrong, which is probably the case

    Well, for the joking aside...you can add a wing, like pictured below, or have the paint that matches the true Type R, but..as a post above stated..."why fawk wit perfection"

    there isn't much you can improve on an S2000. 2.0L VTEC 240hp engine (120hp per liter), 9k RPM redline, 6 speed close ratio tranny, standard LSD. I'm sure there are a few other things I missed, but you get the point.

    Actually Honda did improve on the 00-03 model.

    it's called the 2004 S2000

    2.2L DOHC VTEC I4, although it has the same hp rating, the torque is upped by like 10 or so ft lbs, mid range is improved, redline is lowered, it's still RWD, still has a close ratio 6 sp, still has a digi tach and still pins you to the seat.

    it also has new 10 spoke rims as opposed to the 5 spokes on the previous model.

    hmm I see I need to update my knowledge on the S2000 before I post.

    I retract my previous post.
